Mission:

At the Center for Biological Diversity, we believe that the welfare of human beings is deeply linked to nature;to the existence in our world of a vast diversity of wild animals and plants. Because diversity has intrinsic value, and because its loss impoverishes society, we work to secure a future for all species, great and small, hovering on the brink of extinction. We do so through science, law, and creative media, with a focus on protecting the lands, waters, and climate that species need to survive.We want those who come after us to inherit a world where the wild is still alive.

Results:

According to the LA Weekly, we're "pound for pound, dollar for dollar, the most effective conservation organization in the country."

The Center for Biological Diversity Inc. Is a non-profit organization that is in the trenches actively getting the job done. This nonprofit organization has lawyers and scientists on their team to speak up for the environment, the animals and our planet. I wholeheartedly support them and love the results of their hard work.

CBD has an outstanding Executive Director and smart, talented staff. They use the law to protect land and species, and they win. I have included the organization as a beneficiary on my retirement account.

The biodiversity crisis is the greatest deathward movement of our age, existentially surpassing even the climate crisis. I am very encouraged by the Center for Biological Diversity's passionate involvement in learning about challenges to species' survival, in publicizing what they've learned, and in finding ways for themselves and allied activists to take action in the face of those challenges. The news items they share are always interesting, sometimes depressing -- for it's good, healthful and responsible for us to know the worst -- , but sometimes also uplifting and enjoyable. Hopefully more people will come to appreciate them and their work.

The Center for Biological Diversity have kept me well informed about the situations and plights of very many wildlife species, from many different groups, so I have great admiration for them as educators. I am especially interested in wolves, because of their very long and ongoing history of being cruelly and irrationally persecuted in this country, and therefore I appreciate the information about wolves that the Center provide, as well of course as all the activism that the Center are engaged in, on behalf of wolves and of many other kinds of animals too.

The Center for Biological Diversity gets results. Many just talk. These guys rock!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Saving the wolf and condor in the Southwest.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I wouldn't change a thing!!

The Center for Biological Diversity is foremost of all the so-called "environmental" organizations who understand the priceless value of all life on earth. I have stretched my own budget to donate more because of the extinction crisis. If some label this successful group as "radical," then I'm proud to be radical.

I have been a conservationist for half a century or so... I still have my emblematic "patch" from the original Earth Day in 1972. Though not a lawyer myself, I was present at the birth of Conservation Law, and personally knew David Sive, John Hamilton Adams, and other lawyers who initiated this. I remember the photo of David Sive on the front page of the Sunday NY Times, in the early 70s, in a report on the first major environmental law test before the U.S. Supreme Court -- a suit endeavoring to protect sea otters off Alaska from practice shelling by the U.S. Navy.... I have the highest opinion of the Center for Biological Diversity. BRAVO!

I'm not sure if anything more can be said about the stellar work the Center for Biological Diversity is engaged in. There are a lot of groups out there who collect a lot of money for online petitions or advertising, with opaque management and questionable results. I see the Center on the ground taking legal action, bringing gains for our collective future that we can be proud of. I chose to become a quarterly donor so that they can continue their amazing work.
